Outreach and School Relations at CSUDH will present the Super Saturday African-American College & Career Summit from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 28.
The summit was created to increase college preparation, enrollment and graduation rates among African American students.
Students can attend seminars and workshops, receive assistance with federal aid and Cal State admissions applications, attend parent information sections, learn about African American male achievement and make community college connections.
“Super Saturday is designed to build coalitions, share resources, have in-depth conversations and devise strategies to address some of the most pressing challenges and opportunities facing African American students,” said Matthew Smith, Male Success Alliance director at CSUDH. “Programs like Super Saturday allow us to build and connect with our community, while simultaneously equipping African American students and their families with necessary resources for post-secondary success.”
Free lunch will be given to the first 1,000 visitors. Guests will be given a chance to win an Apple iPad mini, backpacks, T-shirts, lanyards, travel mugs and sweatshirts.
Registration for the African-American College & Career Summit can be completed at CSUDH.edu/SuperSaturday.
